News: "Mi Abuela, Queen of Nightmares" Comes to The Tank Sept. 8th-Oct. 1st


Having had a workshop run downtown last June (you can read our review here - short version: we recommend it!), Mi Abuela, Queen of Nightmares, written by Christine Stoddard and directed by Fiamma Piacentini, returns further uptown, for a run from September 8-October 1 at The Tank (312 West 36th Street). Mi Abuela, Queen of Nightmares follows Maya, a young Salvadoran-American, who navigates trauma and family mythology through magic and folklore as she comes of age in Phoenix, Arizona. Her story explores mother-daughter relationships, mixed race identity, being the child of an immigrant, growing up without a father, and using fantasy as a coping mechanism, while featuring movement and dance. Owls, jaguars, and cacti also make dream-like and delightful appearances.

The cast of Mi Abuela, Queen of Nightmares features Adriana Ascencio, Lupita Asto, Telba Cavero, Andie Fuentes, Addy Marsh, and Ash Patlan. Performances will take place on September 8th, 9th, 14th, 15th, 16th, 18th, 21st, 22nd, 23rd, 28th, 29th, and 30th at 7:00 PM; September 10th, 17th, and 24th at 3:00 PM; and October 1st at 3:00 PM.
